Girl's Spa Day Out Gone Very Wrong!
A few weeks ago I and a few of my cute co-workers decided to go for a "Girl's Spa Day"! We booked "Bodywraps" and talked about it for weeks, how fun it would be and how many inches we would lose. When they asked if we all wanted to be in the same room we replied sure..it would be more fun that way. We were pumped! The big day arrives and we show up at the appointed hour....little did we know. We each had our own personal body wrapper who escorted us into one big room with four beds and said, "Okay, take off your clothes!" We looked at each other, looked at them and said, "Ummmm, we are not that kind of friends." Hailey didn't mind as she was the only one with regular unmentionables. The rest of us had to don the "paper underwear" that they keep for just such occasions....oh my, it was like wearing a paper thong! We begged for robes...an essential part of any spa experience I have ever had...and were brought some towels with elastic in the top. It didn't even matter as the girls all launched heartily into their jobs of measuring every point on our bodies...calling out the measurements to their partners...ohhhhh just shoot me. And then rubbing a cinnamon exfoliant all over our bodies and then slathering them with who knows what....this all while we are standing there fully exposed...well unless you count the paper underwear.....and freezing to death while our skin turned 3 shades of red from the lovely cinnamon cream. Then the icing on the cake was to be literally wrapped in saran wrap....right off of the saran wrap roll and lifted onto the bed like a caterpillar in his chrysalis to rest and relax and let all the goop work it's magic! At least at that point we were covered. Not for long....after the appropriate baking time we were then stripped of our blankets and literally cut out of the saran wrap...with cold scissors I might add. Then ordered to stand naked once more while they called out those measurements to one another! We did lose a total of 20 inches or so between us but at what cost? Dignity? And you can't go back.....I think we are all much better friends now that we've bonded as human burritos! Spa Day anyone?
